Two months are left until the midterms, and the only question that remains is simple: how much will people remember?
Will they remember what the price of gasoline was in January of 2021? Or will they remember the whitewashed and poll-tested applause line: “Putin’s price hike”?
Will they remember a time when they could pay for groceries and heat their homes in the same month without wondering if they’d be able to do it again in the next one? Or will they remember the Biden administration’s insistence that inflation is “zero”?
Will they remember that parents were called “domestic terrorists” for questioning the curriculum being forced upon their children? Or will they be so relieved to have their kids back in school and — for the most part — mask-free that they let it slide?
Will they see the continued attacks on the Supreme Court’s legitimacy and understand how important control of the Senate is? Or will they buy the media narrative that overturning Roe was just the first step in stripping away more rights?
Memory is a tricky thing in politics — often, voters lack the ability to see anything beyond the here and now — but they’re going to have to if they want to see the balance of power shift.
